“Hamilton Has Made History”- Monica Lennon Speaks at First Ever South Lanarkshire Pride

Monica took to the stage at South Lanarkshire’s first-ever Pride festival on Saturday, which was a roaring success.

“It was a privilege and honour to take part in such a historic moment for Hamilton. Seeing local people of all ages and backgrounds come together in celebration of the LGBTQ+ community was beautiful to see.

“Pride is not just a celebration, but a protest and with attacks on LGBTQ+ equality here in Scotland and overseas, it’s never been more important to be an active ally.

“Well done to Malcolm Thomas-Harley and everyone who helped organise Hamilton’s first ever Pride-I am already excited for South Lanarkshire Pride 2024 and beyond.”
